MPlayer GUI problems


I'm trying to install MPlayer (obviously). However, when I type
in the mplayer directory ./configure --enable-gui
I get
Code:
Error:  The GUI requires GTK devel packages (which were not found).
only problem is, I Know I have gtk, gtk-devel, libpng, and libpng-devel installed. Help?

Try running ./configure --help

This will give you a long list of options that you can pass to the configure script. You may see something similar to "--gtkdev-lib=". Obviously I'm just guessing that, but there should be something like that. Then you can run:
Code:
# ./configure --ebable-gui  --gtkdev-lib=/usr/lib/gtk-dev
but use where your gtkdev libs actually are...

Suse uses RPM right? So use:
Code:
# rpm -ql gtk-dev | grep lib
This command will list all the files that gtk-dev installed, and filter in the libraries.
Now you know what directory your gtk-dev libs are in.

If you get "gtk-lib package not installed" error or some thing then run:
Code:
# rpm -qa | grep gtk
This will list all packages with gtk in the title

hi,

i also encountered this problem when i tried to install Mplayer on Xandros 3.0.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>...
xandros:/home/erdos/My Documents/MPlayer-1.0pre6a# ./configure --enable-gui
....
....
Checking for XShape extension ... yes
Checking for GTK version ...
Error: The GUI requires GTK devel packages (which were not found).

Check "configure.log" if you do not understand why it failed.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

can someone tell me how to install GTK devel package?

i'm running Xandros 3.0 Deluxe on a IBM Thinkpad T23 machine.

thanks,

Xandros is debian based unless I'm mistaken. I think you can just download the rpms then use alien to convert them to deb packages.

Mplayer uses gtk 1.x and not gtk 2.x, so you need to have them both and their devel packages installed on your system.

why don't you try the lazy way:

install synaptic and then it will take care of all the dependencies for you. That's how i got mplayer running.

good luck

hi all,

i got the same problem. I use SuSE 9.2. I was looking for gtk but needed packages are not included in distribution. I don't know why. I downloaded them from rpmfind.net, installed and now it works.

packages are:
glib-devel-1.2.10-586.i586.rpm
gtk-devel-1.2.10-877.i586.rpm

bye
